Main Campus


The learning and teaching for this programme is grounded in professional practice, with the programme designed to develop individual and team capability to enhance that practice. Students will have the opportunity to develop the necessary technical, creative and logistical skills required for direct entry to the workplace while enhancing their language skills both at college and in the wider Gaelic community.

The qualification gives candidates the opportunity to develop a wide range of industry-specific knowledge and skills, whilst also developing transferable skills. The aim of the programme is to produce graduates who will be fully equipped to shape the future of the industry.

Students will be taught in a work-based production environment and, through a structured learning programme, will quickly apply and adapt their learning to meet the needs of their future employers. The students will work with industry professionals throughout the programme, across a range of modules, providing opportunities to develop invaluable networks.

During Year 1 of the Dip HE in Gaelic Media, students will have the opportunity of 1 week’s work-based learning with a BBC Outside Broadcast Unit at The Royal National Mòd. The programme will also include specialised masterclasses from nationally, and internationally recognised industry specialists in technical, production and communication skills.
